lyrics

maribel lives for welcoming faces
looks in all the wrong places
it’s a game that she plays
she’s ashamed then she prays

maribel’s much too old to wear braces
it’s a cold kind of stasis
it’s been the same rain for days
is it blame? is it praise?

it’s nobody’s fault
life cuts you open
and they pass the salt

maribel adds a queen to her aces
she’s covered all the bases
it’s a hard way to lose
when to beg? when to choose?

maribel has a thing for famous faces
she lays them down and traces
it’s where she belongs
she’s a silence for songs

it’s nobody’s fault
life cuts you open
and they pass the salt
